Not sure what you were expecting, AC...but thanks, I think.

PI, I expected a 30+ year old white guy with a goatee, clad in ARMY surplus. That's what your e-personality leads one to assume.
WTF, is PI really a small asian woman, or something? Now I'm curious...

A couple of water benders, a dike, a flaming arrow, and a few barrels of blasting jelly?

Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.
...thanks

 I got to lace up her corset, so total win for me.


There is a very good reason why I do the ren faire thing now.  This is it.  Also: bodices.  I've been told I have a knack for lacing them up.

I loved:
~meeting everybody and finally putting a face to a name.
~hanging out with my new nerdy friends and playing games.
~buying things for not-too-bad prices.
~eating a ton of junk food.
~The endless and plentiful orgies
~dressing up.
~being gloriously nerdy.
~wearing a pink shirt that had the word "clam" on it.
~listening to Zeke sing about going to bed
~watching Woodrow walk around in daisy dukes
~Seeing Adam's balls and listening to the remarks he made afterwards
~standing over Meg and Josh's bed and watching them as they slept
~ rooming with Meg and Josh and getting to see them in full panel action!
~getting free stuff from vendors, people I had just met, and some people I didn't know at all...
~Getting to hug the giant Munchkin and hold his chainsaw
~getting to talk to a few of the artists and finding out how they got their artwork into games
~seeing the horses pulling the carriages. They were cute and some even had glitter on their hooves!
~ taking care of the drunkies and watching them pass out in funny, awkward positions.
~Seeing Robert Bohl's face when I accused him of being the worshipper (which he was). He's an actor.
~Seeing ChrisWait's reaction when EVERYONE accused him of being the worshipper (he was the MFing SEER) 
~spending some good, quality time in small aircrafts with a really cranky AC. You have no idea how much fun he is when he's sleep deprived.  :D

I did feel bad that I didn't contribute anything to the panels I went to-sorry Josh and Meg! I just felt sorta stupid. I really didn't have anything intelligent to say, and to keep the illusion that I wasn't completely retarded, I decided to just keep my mouth shut. I did learn a lot though. I should shut up more often.  :D

I also felt bad that I was such a party pooper. I was ALWAYS the first one to bed. I wasn't happy about that. I promise it won't happen again. I overscheduled myself. The two weeks leading up to Gencon were filled with a ton of Taiko rehearsals, sewing, and midterm projects. By the time I got to Gencon, I was already running on empty.
I'm never going to do that much at one time ever again. I hope.

Anyway, I had a blast. It's really fun to be around people who are passionate about gaming. But it's really really fun to be around awesome people! Seriously, you guys were a fun crowd to hang out with.  

Oh, this I had to share:
There was a guy walking around the con taking pictures of people with his bunny rabbit. I was a little freaked out when he walked up to me, perfectly straight faced and asked me if he could take a picture of me holding his rabbit. Now that I've seen the gallery, I find it hilarious. There are some truly funny ones in there.

People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.

You know, if I had seen that that was your Black Canary outfit, I would've fought much harder against you choosing Pikachu for the night I got to hang out with you.

~wearing a pink shirt that had the word "clam" on it.
I just remembered my favorite 2 minutes.
I was wearing the BG shirt given to me. It politely said, in large font, "They call it a clam for a reason." on the front.
BimR decided I had to wait for her while she went to the restroom. I had a wonderful 2 minutes sitting on the floor next to the door to the women's restroom wearing the aforementioned shirt while women walked by, staring awkwardly. :D
The cake is a lie.

Fixed.
I don't think you're a reliable source for this information. :P

But then again...

"Just what do you think the moon up in the sky is? Everyone sees that big, round shiny thing and thinks there must be something round up there, right? That's just silly. The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"
